With summer finally here, you’re probably eager to spend as much time outside as possible.

Summer festivals have a long and celebrated history (Woodstock and Burning Man, anyone?), as they serve as a chance for like minds to come together and commemorate a specific cultural movement or idealism. The average modern-day summer music festival follows this sentiment, but with so many options out there (festivals are a dime a dozen these days), planning your wardrobe can be more overwhelming than exciting. We planned this guide in the hopes of putting the fun and free back into festival-going by providing various looks that are sure to be a hit.
You can never go wrong with a pair of cowgirl boots at a festival, regardless of what it’s intended to celebrate. Pair your kicks with a simple white spaghetti strap dress, a straw hat and a leather side satchel. If your destination is located in the desert, as many festivals are, consider swapping out the white dress for more practical denim shorts and a crop top.
Let’s be honest — the bohemian look is the original festival look. If you want to remain authentic to the true spirit of music festivals, don your floral maxi dress or maxi skirt, a flowing tunic and some bangles. Don’t forget the larger than life sunglasses, hat and earrings, all of which can really pull your look together.
This look is ideal for festivals that are far more subdued than, say, Coachella or Electric Daisy Carnival. Channel your inner warrior princess with a long, flowy black dress (lace is a must!), knee high suede boots and felt fedora. Go heavy on the eyeliner and, if you’ve ever wondered if there is a time to do spider-leg lashes, now is it.
Do you want a chance to play around with the newest clothing trend that is neon but don’t feel comfortable wearing a bright pink jacket to the office? Buy your ticket for EDC or a similar concert and go all out with the mesh, neon, glowsticks and leather. You’ll fit right in.
In all honesty, summer music festivals are about expression. Find a look you like and that suits your personality and it’s sure to be a hit. And, if you’re really proud of your festival look, share it on our Facebook page!

Unless you’re a makeup artist, chances are that you don’t wash your makeup brushes all that often — or ever. While normal, reusing the same dirty brush time and time again is not only gross but also, it’s downright bad for your complexion. Unwashed makeup brushes are a hotbed of bacteria that you continually swipe away from and apply to your face day after day. Moreover, the constant buildup can wear on your bristles and significantly reduce the lifespan of your brushes. If you say no thanks to breakouts and broken brushes, you’re not alone. So, what are you going to do about it? (more…)

You don’t need to invest in weekly manicures to have healthy nails, though — you simply need to follow these tips. (more…)
If you’re like most people who struggle with dry skin, you have a love-hate relationship with your complexion.

The good news is, with the right skincare products and tips, you can maintain a glowing complexion (and your smug attitude!) year-round. (more…)
